Why stay here ...

Set in a quiet, simple and spacious location, Stover Club Site lies next to a beautiful country park on the edge of Dartmoor. If you crave a tranquil break and a wealth of lovely scenic walks, this is the ideal caravan site for your holiday. The Stover Park itself offers a variety of walks - you can choose secure expeditions guided by the Park staff or if you fancy something more challenging the wilder terrains of Dartmoor nearby are waiting to be discovered.

Visitors to Stover Club Site can enjoy the other aspects of Dartmoor by following the nature trail through a lovely valley to see Becky Falls. You can also opt for a leisurely drive to Canonteign for another country park well worth visiting as well as a host of delightful waterfalls. There is also a memorable Heritage Trail near the caravan park called the Templer Way; it runs from Haytor right through to the sea at Shaldon.

Less than a mile away is Trago Mills Family shopping and Leisure Park which includes super karts, trawler boats, steam and model railways plus an interactive animal enclosure so there is something for everyone nearby.

Digital TV signal booster in operation (no lead required).

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Walking notes:

Dartmoor National Park is the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England, with over 368 square miles of moorland, forest and woodland. Stover Country Park is adjacent to the site, via a public footpath to the rear of the site and along a disused railway track. The park has a lake, walking routes, nature centre, aerial walkway and is great for dogs.

Supermarket notes:

The nearest supermarket is the Co-Op next to Trago Mills, 2.3 miles away and with motorhome access. Tesco is just outside Newton Abbot – proceed towards the town and then follow the signs for Newton Abbot Racecourse. Sainsbury's is just off the Penn Inn Roundabout on the A380. Asda is in the town centre.

A well run site.

The squirrels (tree rats) were under my motorhome, but no damage done, suggest pest control. Will visit again as it was a well run site.

A great site for motorhomers

We stayed on this site April/May for 3 weeks and really enjoyed our stay. We come back every year at the same time and we have been lucky to get the same pitch. This is our kind of site,no facilities, just electric hook-up and hardstanding,makes for a reasonably priced stay. We do not find traffic noise too extreme, we did get the odd noise from clay pigeon shooting but this only seemed to annoy the dogs on site. Possibly a pitch near the road would be noisy. Thereissuch a lot to do from this site if you love walking. Easy to get up on Dartmoor if you take the bus to Bovey Tracey. Lots of walks around Bovey Tracey.. A nice walk from stover off road to Newton Abbott is a must and get the bus back. There is a nice café stop part way on the walk where refreshments can be obtained. Plenty of places to visit using the bus to Newton Abbot and then travelling down to the coast.. We never find it a problem walking to Trago using the road from the roundabout. You just have to use common sense, be aware of the fast moving traffic and be prepared to step onto the grass verge if necessary. Also wear sensible shoes as the grass verge can be a little narrow and undulating. If you are worried about using this road there is another way through the golf course which comes out onto a quiet country lane which you turn right on and it takes you to the back entrance of Trago. although this is a much longer way. We understand that the road into Trago is being changed and it may be that direct access for vehicles will come direct from just near the A38 roundabout . There are plenty of supermarkets in Newton Abbot,as well as the co-op at trago.. In the town centre is Asda, Tescos is just outside the town,a short distance from Tescos is Lidl. A new Aldi store is being built not far from the train station and a bit further up the road is Sainsburys. All these supermarkets are served by a bus service.

The Lacals do Local camping

We must have driven past Stover a million times as we only live in Plymouth. Not put off by the distance 😃 Or lack of toilet block , we decided to give it a go,as we are normally CL types. The access is easy and the hard standings are nice and level. The country park was another first for us, and very enjoyable. The local co-op was handy for food and alcohol re supply as was the Shell petrol station for fuel. Yep, a bit of road noise from the adjacent roads ,but off set by the extremely well kept site and friendly helpful staff.

Lovely site - shame about the road noise and clay pigeon shooting

We booked this site for 12 days but knew on arrival we couldn't possibly put up with the constant road noise 24/7 although we did stay for 6 days after which we moved on to a very peaceful CL with sea views for the rest of our stay....Bliss! There is nothing in the club write up to suggest there is a problem with road noise although it is mentioned in a couple of reviews. We pitched as far away as we could at the far end of the site but still experienced noise from both the A38 and the A382. Not sure where the people who describe this site as peaceful and tranquil were situated. If peace and quiet is high on your agenda, this site is NOT for you. Shame really because it is a lovely site and the wardens are very helpful, it just needs to be somewhere else. As already mentioned in another review there is also the clay pigeon shooting which unnerved our dogs. Stover Country Park is very nice but if you have dogs beware, they are not allowed off lead around the lake and water courses which doesn't leave a lot where they can safely be let off lead. Our dogs found an open farm gate in the country park that had been left wide open onto a road! 10 out of 10 for the campsite and wardens.
